Bug#606550: libflite1: flite in speech-dispatcher, speech cuts out early

Package: libflite1
Version: 1.4-release-2
Severity: important

I just received the update of speech-dispatcher 0.7-6 in Debian Squeeze.
Yay, flite module now works!
However, there is a nasty issue when using flite in speech-dispatcher.
The last second of so of text-to-speech gets chopped off, and I can't hear
the end of what the voice is saying.

My complete /etc/speech-dispatcher/speechd.conf looks like this:

LogLevel  3
LogDir  "default"
DefaultVolume 100
AudioOutputMethod "alsa"
AddModule "flite"        "sd_flite"     "flite.conf"
AddModule "dummy"         "sd_dummy"      ""
DefaultModule flite
Include "/etc/speech-dispatcher/clients/*.conf"
Include "clients/*.conf"

To reproduce,
  /etc/init.d/speech-dispatcher start
  spd-say "testing"
it will sound like "test" instead of "testing".

-- System Information:
Debian Release: squeeze/sid
